The requestor is asking for a "celtic fc" version. Not knowing what that was as opposed to the original version, I posted the request. Bot versions in the Digital Tradition are from the U.S.

May I suggest that the person goes onto the BBC 606 forum under Celtic Football Club and put the same question. You need to be a member to post.
I did an extensive search, but couldn't find anything. is it possible that this person has the wrong song title?

Yes, not being from Scotland, esp. Glasgow, I can't help with this one!
Presumably it's a football crowd parody?

NOTES: Cazden et al have very extensive notes about the origins of this song, which largely boil down to, "Hey, we found this song, and it belongs to us and our informant!" Nonetheless, their notes, and the existence of the several versions in Randolph, demonstrate that the song has become a true folk piece. - RBW
Seeger dates this song from the 1880s, but offers no documentation. - PJS
The version in Cox, collected in 1917, was reported to be from the informant's mother, which makes a nineteenth century date highly likely. Indeed, the first verse begins,
Eighteen hundred seventy one,
January the first,
Thought I'd write a poem,
If I could or durst.
It will be noted, however, that this verse doesn't scan as well as the others. But Randolph's informant Doney Hammontree said it was in "all the popular songbooks" in the 1890s. Still, the biggest single factor in its popularity was probably the Dalhart recording. - RBW

Refresh. This one should have an answer. I thought this was a Celtic folk Club version that was requested....but now I get the idea it must be a rowdy football club version.

Puttin' on the kilograms, puttin' on the pounds,
That's what us old folkies are doin' all around,
Looking at the singaround my jaw drops to the ground,
Seein' the old folkies puttin' on the pounds

Here's the lyrrics

Putting On The Agony: 1969 Cup Final Remix

Oh Hampden Park was crowded
The fans began to roar
The Rangers fans were singing
Of the sash their father wore.
But very soon
The changed their tune
When the Celtic plan was set,
For Lennox crossed to Billy McNeill
And the ball was in the net!

Chorus
Putting on the agony
Putting on the style
One, two, three, four lovely goals
Scoring all the while.
There's nothing in this whole wide world
That makes you want to smile
Like watching Glasgow Celtic
Putting on the style
Now Lennox he caused trouble
With his running through
And from a long ball from defence
He made it number two.
All that day he worked his way
To make the Rangers prance
And the Celtic End went round the bend
Doing the victory dance
Chorus

Now just before the interval
Came goal number three
And this time it was slotted in
By young george Connelly
in his first cup final
A day he'll not forget
When he walked the ball round big John Greig
Into the Rangers net.
Chorus

Chalmers was our centre
He gave his all and more
And to him fell the honour
Of scoring number four.
A dribble down the left wing
A shot which goalward sped
And once again the Scottish Cup
Was resting at Parkhead.
Chorus "

The 1957 7-1 match is referred to here
Celtic Forum 7 Oct 2008  but not quoted in full. " ...There is a lot more verses to the song but I get them mixed up a bit now after over 50 years . ..."

But this seems more confident

A yankee came to Hampden Park a football match to see
Attracted by the magic of the Old Firm rivalry
Well, little did he know just what a treat he had in store
When watching Glasgow Celtic adding to the score

Chorus
Piling on the agony
Puting on the style
And 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 scoring all the while
He'd never seen such football
He travelled many a mile
As watching Glasgow Celtic puting on the style

Whens the game about to start, oh when does it begin
Oh why have they not started, oh why they shooting in
Oh the game is well in progress Sir, he answered with a smile
Your watching Glasgow Celtic puting on the style
Chorus

Hampden Park was crowded the fans began to roar
The Rangers fans were singing, with the scarves their fathers wore
But very soon they changed their tune, History it was set
When Willie Fernie got the ball and he stuck it in the net
Chorus

Whos that boy out on the wing, the one in Green and White
The boys in Blue cant catch him, though they try with all their might
That nimble sone of Éireann, with all the football guile
It's Charles Patrick Tully puting on the style
Chorus

Now the famous Celtic supporters, all want to go to heaven
To celebrate that League Cup win of 1957
That day will be remembered, for a game so nobley won
When Celtic met the Rangers and beat them 7-1
Chorus
